Number Nine wind power application withdrawn

EDP Renewables, which proposed to construct the largest wind power development in Maine, a 119 turbine facility with an installed capacity of 250 megawatts in unorganized townships in Aroostook County, has withdrawn its application to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

EDP had also proposed a 51.6 mile transmission line.

However, the company has faced a gauntlet of troubles.

In July, EDP’s power purchase agreement with two Connecticut utilities, signed in 2013 to line up customers for the project, was ended because of a number of delays.

In September, a spokesperson for ISO New England said the transmission connections for the project would be in areas that “were not designed or constructed to carry large amounts of electricity.”

In October, the Number Nine wind power project lost a bidding competition to provide power to southern New England utilities.
